Previous GeneCards Identifiers for KLHL9 Gene
This gene encodes a protein that belongs to the kelch repeat-containing family, and contains an N-terminal BTB/POZ domain, a BACK domain and six C-terminal kelch repeats. The encoded protein is a component of a complex with cullin 3-based E3 ligase, which plays a role in mitosis. This protein complex is a cell cycle regulator, and functions in the organization and integrity of the spindle midzone in anaphase and the completion of cytokinesis. The complex is required for the removal of the chromosomal passenger protein aurora B from mitotic chromosomes. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2016]
GeneCards Summary for KLHL9 Gene
KLHL9 (Kelch Like Family Member 9) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with KLHL9 include Klhl9-Related Early-Onset Distal Myopathy and Nemaline Myopathy 9. Among its related pathways are Innate Immune System and Class I MHC mediated antigen processing and presentation. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include ubiquitin-protein transferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is KLHL13.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for KLHL9 Gene
Substrate-specific adapter of a BCR (BTB-CUL3-RBX1) E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase complex required for mitotic progression and cytokinesis. The BCR(KLHL9-KLHL13) E3 ubiquitin ligase complex mediates the ubiquitination of AURKB and controls the dynamic behavior of AURKB on mitotic chromosomes and thereby coordinates faithful mitotic progression and completion of cytokinesis.
